The article considers the circumstances in which a landlord can compel its tenants to carry out repairing obligations. It reviews traditional objections to specific performance, including lack of mutuality and a court supervision requirement, the unusual circumstances of Rainbow Estates Ltd v Tokenhold Ltd [1999] Ch 64, the tests it formulated for granting specific performance, and Law Commission proposals to make the remedy more widely available to enforce repairs.
